About a. year and a half ago I bought a D600 and would get inconsistent sharpness.  A couple of months ago I started to fine focus rate the focus. Not only did I improve sharpness (my  default setting is -10) but I saw a huge variation lens to lens.

A few weeks ago I got a D800 and have been blown away by the step up from the D600.  After running a few lenses through the fine tune, I saw no reason to change the default setting.

I suspect that either the camera or more likely the lens needs a calibration.
